There’s been a lot of talk about Jennifer Lopez lately thanks to the Maid in Manhattan star’s newest film, Hustlers. The actress managed to nab a couple of nominations at the Golden Globes and at the Screen Actors Guild Awards for her performance in the 2019 movie.

Awed by her talent and skill, fans have been wondering why the actress has never really managed to get a part in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Speaking in an interview with Hustlers producer Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, Indie Wire decided to go ahead and ask the question of why Lopez hasn’t appeared in a Marvel Studios film yet.

According to Goldsmith-Thomas, she and Lopez haven’t been invited to join the Marvel film franchise yet, however, according to the producer, they would certainly be open to the opportunity if Marvel Studios gave the actress a great role to play.

“The truth is, we haven’t been invited. If we were invited into the Marvel franchise and there’s a great character, why not? They’re great stories. But we come at everything a little sideways. It’s been the road less taken, but maybe that’s the defining factor,” the producer told the entertainment news outlet.

Marvel might not have invited Lopez yet, but there are a lot of parts that the actress could play if the studio chooses to cast her in a role. After all, Marvel is just entering the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There are a lot of new roles to go around with Marvel entering the future. We wouldn’t be surprised if Marvel decided to invite J.Lo in one of its new movies, perhaps one that includes the X-Men.

Phase 4 of the MCU begins when Black Widow premieres on May 1, 2020.
